Friday Favorites: Japanese Pranks

The Japanese pull off the best pranks in the world. Bar none. No one is more innovative, more committed, and more elaborate.

You probably have seen the velociraptor chase prank; it has been making the rounds in Facebook lately. If you haven't, well, here you go. You're welcome.

This has been called the best prank ever, but I respectfully disagree. There is so much more where this came from. I have had countless dinners with colleagues that culminated with typing "Japanese pranks" in the YouTube search bar and laughing our asses off for a good hour or two. Seriously, there are that many. Consider this a partial list of my favorites. 

1. The Flash Mob
In which a mob suddenly appears, and chases after innocent people walking down what is normally a very quiet street.

2. The Toilet Prank
Think twice before using that Portalet.

3. The MRI Scan
This is not exactly a prank, but a reality show sort of thing. But I swear, I swear, it's the funniest thing I've seen. I kid you not. I am laughing as I type this.

Have a happy weekend! And remember, when chased by a velociraptor, check to see if it has human legs first before scurrying away ;)
